Living the simple life

I am Goth by nature, a carer by choice and a crafter by habit. living the Old Style way, spending less and making what I can myself. I follow Money Saving Expert and NYK forum avidly and am working to be debt free.


I shop wisely as every penny counts, my stock cupboard is my solution to any problem.


My home is full of craft stuff and I love making things for my grandson Michael and grand- daughter Bethany who are the reason I get up everyday. My kids are the best in the world and I thank them for being there for me and John

We have a community shop on a Friday now at the local community centre. You get approximately £12.50 worth of food for £2.50. this last week's load. You get 4 items from store cupboard staples, 2 from the fridge, 1 from the freezer and a choice of cereals and random stuff.

On the way out you can pick as much cake,bread fruit and veg as you like. I quite like the process including the tea and toast while you wait. It's certainly helping fill up my low supplies and coming in useful.

Tonight I made chilli and had no kidney beans but had a tin of butter beans so pleased with the swop.

Looking forward to tomorrow's visit.
